    Callie Shell fails from the opening paragraph in this book where she states “it isn’t meant to make us miss them more”. How could we not? Regardless of your politics or whether or not you felt he was a good/bad president, there is no question that the Obamas generated a great deal of gravitas and warmth that’s sadly missing now. You could say Shell’s ‘fan’ photos are no different to what you would find at a Trump rally in terms of excitement, but the Obama-ites seem to convey hope as opposed to Callie Shell fails from the opening paragraph in this book where she states “it isn’t meant to make us miss them more”.

You could say Shell’s ‘fan’ photos are no different to what you would find at a Trump rally in terms of excitement, but the Obama-ites seem to convey hope as opposed to anger and aggression. If anything, Shell’s photos focus more on hope than division. One of my favourites is the couple on page 97 – a perfect example of the title: Hope, Never Fear. My absolute favourite is the photo on page 133 of the Obamas in a freight elevator, but the best quote from the book is : “We also have to keep teaching our children and ourselves to engage with people who not only look different but who hold different views”. Not holding my breath waiting for similar pearls of wisdom from the incumbent.

Sie begleitete die Familie bei jedem Wahlkampf und hielt emotionale und besondere Momente für die Nachwelt fest. Ihre Bilder gewähren einen ganz persönlichen Einblick auf Michelle und Barack Obama. In dem Buch lernt man den Präsidenten und seine Familie auf eine andere Art und Weise kennen und lieben. Ihre Erfahrungen und besonderen Momente mit den Obamas schildert Shell zu Anfang des Buches und ich muss sagen, dass es eine einzigartige Sichtweise auf ihre gemeinsame Zeit ist. Bei jedem Bild ist die Empathie, die von den Obamas ausgeht, spürbar und ich denke das spricht sehr für Callie Shell. Ihre Bilder haben immer etwas ganz besonderes und sie drücken so viele Dinge gleichzeitig aus. In einem Bild stecken so viele Gefühle aber vor allem steckt in jedem einzelnen Bild Hoffnung und niemals Furcht. Neben den Bildern stehen Zitate aus Reden und Interviews von Michelle und Barack Obama. Diese Zitate zeigen einem noch genauer, was für empathische Menschen sie sind und wie richtig moralisch sie ihre Aufgaben erledigen. Die Obamas sind sympathisch und dieses Buch zeigt einem wieder warum das so ist. Ich kann gar nicht sagen welches der Bilder mir am besten gefallen hat und erst die ganzen Zitate, die mir jedes Mal Gänsehaut bereiten. Besonders bewegt haben mich die Bilder, die Barack und Michelle zeigen, undzwar in Momenten, wo nur die Beiden zählen und ihre Liebe füreinander jedem den Atem raubt. Für mich verkörpern die Obamas Hoffnung und Mut zu dem zu stehen wer man ist und wo man herkommt. Das Buch bringt einem diese Botschaft um so vieles näher und beim Lesen spürt man diese Hoffnung auf jeder einzelnen Seite.

    After coming home from University of New England for the Bachelor of Social Work Intensives (four long days), this is the period of self-reflection. I opened up my parcel and settled in to look at this book of images of the Obama’s and their quotes. It makes me think, well the last four days were hard, the next four year are going to be hard, will I be able to make a change as a social worker as a lone wolf? I think I can! Even if it’s just dropping a pebble into the water and it starts to rippl After coming home from University of New England for the Bachelor of Social Work Intensives (four long days), this is the period of self-reflection.

Even if it’s just dropping a pebble into the water and it starts to ripple. The Obama’s just reflect a certain human connectedness for me. So maybe being a librarian and future social worker I could and can make a change amongst people that are difficult.

    All that is good about being American is between these covers. The photos reveal the essence of the Obamas, all the better for Callie Shell having put them into context. The thoughtful quotes are carefully married to these previously unpublished photographs.

    Beautiful photography. Fond memories. Sadness by the loss of what once was.

In der Einleitung zum Bildband, beschreibt Callie Shell, wie sie die Obamas kennengelernt hat, mit ihnen gearbeitet hat und wie sie eine Vertraute von ihnen wurde. Sie gibt noch einmal einen Einblick in die legendäre Wahlkampagne von Barack Obama und seiner Zeit im Weißen Haus.
Zu fast jedem Foto findet man ein Zitat von Michelle oder Barack Obama. Diese spiegeln vor allem wieder, wie unheimlich inspirierend, gütig und menschlich die beiden sind.

Dieses Buch ist ein einmaliger und zum Teil auch sehr intimer Einblick in das Leben der Familie Obama. Die Bilder sind so ausdrucksstark. Gerade weil sie in Momenten geschossen wurden, wo sich die aufgenommenen Personen nicht des Fotografen bewusst waren. Es ist ein bisschen so, als würde man Mäuschen spielen.
Ich habe vor einigen Wochen "Becoming" von Michelle Obama gelesen und empfinde diesen Bildband als wunderbare Ergänzung dazu. Aber auch wer es nicht kennt und sich für die Obamas interessiert, sollte "Hope, Never Fear" unbedingt im Regal stehen haben.

    It makes me reminisce fondly of the old days when we actually had a smart & moral president. It makes me reminisce fondly of the old days when we actually had a smart & moral president.
